"Universal Carrier with a Punch"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
The Universal Carrier was among my first Tamiya kits back in the '70s when it was released and it is still a favorite of mine. I modified mine some what by adding on detailing parts and placing a 6lb Anti tank gun in tow through some home built ruins of mine in the early stages. Both kits are oldies but rank right up there with the best. I would highly recommend either kit and certainly paired up to anyone.

"Great detail"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
Typical of Tamiya, this kit packs a lot of detail into a very smooth build. I found no overflash and all the parts came of the sprues nicely. The fit of the parts was perfect, and left no visible seems after painting. The result is a picture perfect reproduction of this iconic infantry/armor support vehicle used by the British during World War II.

 
"Great Little Kit and One of Two Versions by Tamiya"
smiffy93
Great little kit, relatively small but nonetheless good to build. Tamiya has this 'Force Reconnaissance' and a 'Fire Support' version out there; pretty much same vehicle different figures. This kit has N.Europe and a Tunisia version of figures to make it different. Agreed tracks are a little tight, narrow so aligning the wheels is critical; that and the drive wheel is static so don't expect moving tracks. Nonetheless a good fun build at a lower price tag and as others suggest, great for dioramas.
